Leader Resource 1: Yoga Pose

Start with this simple pose and add a few more. Practice poses so you can lead them without having to stop to read the next step.

Children should remain quiet during yoga practice to maintain personal concentration.

Invite children to breathe in to begin a pose, breathe out to finish a pose, and breathe evenly between poses.

The Leaf, beginning position with straight spine and then with gently rounded spine. Faint vertical lines show the approximate center of balance.

Sit with spine straight, soles of feet together, hands on ankles. Gently round spine and then return to sitting straight. Repeat several times.
